NAME

Perl::Critic::Policy::Documentation::ProhibitParagraphTwoDots - don’t end a paragraph with two dots

CONTENTS

DESCRIPTION

This policy is part of the Perl::Critic::Pulp add-on. It asks you not to end a POD paragraph with two dots,



    Some thing..                    # bad



This is a surprisingly easy typo, but of course is entirely cosmetic and on that basis this policy is lowest priority and under the cosmetic theme (see POLICY THEMES in Perl::Critic).

Three or more dots as an ellipsis is fine,



    And some more of this ...       # ok



and anything within a paragraph is fine,



    Numbers 1 .. 10 are handled.    # ok



Only text paragraphs are checked, verbatim paragraphs can end with anything at all



    This is an example,

        example_code (1 ..          # ok



There might be other dubious paragraph endings this policy could pick up, but things like ;. or :. can arise from code or smiley faces, so at the moment only two dots are bad.

    Disabling

If you don’t care about this you can disable ProhibitParagraphTwoDots from your .perlcriticrc in the usual way (see CONFIGURATION in Perl::Critic),



    [-Documentation::ProhibitParagraphTwoDots]



A ## no critic directive works in new enough Perl::Critic, but if you have an __END__ token then any no critic generally must be before that.
